Overview

Safari Details

This 4 Days Safari will start and end in Kampala, Uganda's capital city. It involves visiting Kibale National Park which is home to Chimpanzees and other Primate species like the colobus monkeys, and LHoests monkeys among others; the park is famous for chimpanzee tracking, bird watching, nature walks, etc. Also, visitors will visit Bwindi National Park which is located in South West of Uganda.
The park is home to the endangered Mountain Gorillas and over half of the world’s population can be found here (around 350 of them). Outside of Uganda, they can only be found in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo – generally, Mountain Gorillas don’t survive in captivity and therefore you are unlikely to see them in any zoo. Bwindi National Park is home to 5 different groups who are all habituated (accustomed to human visitors) and this is from where we run our Gorilla Tracking tours.
